Augment reality with geographical data - take pictures and see them on maps
GeoCam by Wazar is the leading geophoto and video application for Android. It has made its success by bringing many innovations that you will find amongst its features today.
GeoCam is an augmented reality app that uses your phone camera and adds a layer of geographical information such as Compass orientation, GPS position and different phone inclinations like a theodolite optical instrument.
You can use your camera to take pictures and display them on Google Maps in one click and to Google Earth on your computer. Geographical markers can also be added anywhere and will be shown on Maps and on augmented reality.
With GeoCam Pro, you get:
* No Ads
* Record and playback augmented video. This is a powerful tool in addition to geophoto to record the topology or any area for further reference, as you can add your own audio commentary. Augmented video is an exclusivity of GeoCam by Wazar.
* Export KMZ files to Google Earth, to display your pictures and markers in their original location and orientation, and share them easily.

If for some reason this does not work on your device, best is to contact me by email so that I can fix any issues. I won't be able to help if you do not get in touch.
If you do not get a GPS signal, try opening Google Maps and wait for it to update satellites (until you get a fine location and the GPS icon stops blinking) then restart GeoCam. If Google Maps cannot get a GPS signal, make sure your device GPS is enabled (Settings - Location)
* If you like the app, please rate it :)
** For accurate triangulation when using the GPS, give it a bit of time to get an accurate fix. Wait a few seconds after you move until the figures are stable. When measuring angles, be VERY accurate. A few degrees make a big difference on distant objects. Don't forget that the limitation here is your GPS sensor accuracy, which is about 10 meters. Short distance calculation will therefore be unaccurate.
Height calculation will return a good value on any distance as the inclinaison sensors are much more accurate.
*** When a picture is saved, it's path Alias is displayed. It starts with 'external\'. When looking for it, 'sdcard\DCIM\Camera' is a good place to start.
